This week host Charley Wright spoke with Razmig Bulujian, the Trade Leader for Algofolio Options on Collective2. Razmig learned early that it can be easier for stocks to “slide than glide” and hence has a penchant for short selling and shorter term trades, a preference inspired in the dot-com era. From Drexel Burnham in the 1980s to Merrill Lynch (and several proprietary trading firms in the middle), Razmig’s experience in the industry is impressive and varied.
Charley and Razmig dive in many facets of his trading strategies including how he developed a passion for the markets and speculation growing up in a family-run coin and bullion shop. To Razmig, trading is not simply a matter of prediction but requires sharp attention to market patterns.
